Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading and is hosted by Bermuda Onion.
- sedilia - "Triple sedilia and leaf capitals lined the towering walls." Plural noun - a group of seats for clergy in the south chancel wall of a church, usually three in number and often canopied and decorated.
- bailey - "Across the bailey, on the upper story of the far rectangular keep, through a set of windows apparently opened to the evening, he saw a woman." Noun - the outer wall of a castle.
- papped - "Jake is the only son and heir of Lord Joseph Timberland and he's been papped with some of society's hottest models." Verb - take a photograph of (a celebrity) without permission.
Those are all new to me. I suppose papped come from papparazzi. Thanks for playing along!ReplyDelete
They are great new words, thanks! for sharing.ReplyDelete
I've never heard papped before. I'm going to have to pay attention.ReplyDelete
I think like Bermudaonion :papped and paparazzi seem very closed..ReplyDelete
All are new to me! I agree with Kathy and Annie about papped.ReplyDelete
I think I've heard bailey and papped before, but forgotten them. I don't like papped actually, but think it's come from papparazzi as others have suggested. Actually papparazzi is another concept I don't like either.ReplyDelete
